AllMusic Review by

Part of Starbucks' ongoing Opus Collection series, this Linda Ronstadt compilation brings together tracks the popular vocalist recorded throughout her career. An influential artist who began recording in the late '60s, Ronstadt's music covered such varied styles as rock, country, adult contemporary, and jazz standards. Opus Collection attempts to bridge these stylistic divides by including cuts beginning with her 1970 sophomore solo album, Silk Purse, and moving all the way through to her final 2006 release, Adieu False Heart, after which she retired due to her struggle with Parkinson's disease. Included here are such tracks as "You're No Good," "Heart Like a Wheel," "Ooh Baby Baby," "Lover's Return," "Cry Me a River," and more.
